Teaching Applications: Where Is NI Multisim Used?

Featured Application Areas

 

02050403Analog Circuits and Analysis

Using the intuitive graphical environment of Multisim, students can quickly place electronic components and simulate behavior to understand fundamental concepts. The component library includes resistors, capacitors, inductors, power sources, switches, bipolar junction transistors, and field effect transistors while the environment comprises oscilloscope instruments, probes, and SPICE analyses to truly build analog electronics expertise. Complete integration with the NI myDAQ and NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) platforms help students learn through hands-on exploration.

Digital Logic Circuits, Microcontrollers, and FPGAs

Multisim includes digital logic gates, counters, and microcontrollers to augment the teaching approach of introductory digital electronics topics such as Boolean algebra. The specialized programmable logic device schematic gives students the ability to translate digital logic gate circuits into raw VHDL deployed to FPGA targets from partners such as Digilent so students can deploy to hardware to learn digital fundamentals without needing to learn complex syntax.

Power Electronics and Systems

Energy and power is a critical area of new courses and research in educational institutes around the world. The Multisim environment includes a library of components and specialized analyses for students to explore concepts including AC-to-DC conversion, DC-to-DC switch mode power supplies, DC-to-AC for motor drives, renewable energy, rectifiers, inverters, and PWM.

Student Design and Research Projects

With the same Multisim environment, students can use the accompanying NI Ultiboard layout and routing environment to prototype physical printed circuit board (PCB) designs. Student design and research projects can be either stand-alone PCBs, or integrated as a part of a system using NI myDAQ or NI myRIO.

What do our Customers say about us?

I have greatly appreciated your help, your restraint in response to some daft questions and your sheer professionalism.

PL, Tunbridge Wells, UK

Excellent! Very much appreciated how the content was tailored to our needs.

When working with many data points, graphing is often the quickest way to qualify data and identify trends. With the Origin statistics gadget, it’s also easy to pull quantitative information, such as mean and standard deviation, straight from a data plot. This lets me make better decisions about which data to select for more detailed analysis.
